Sanctions Be Damned, Russia Wants to Sell Iran New Missiles

Antey-2500 missiles

Russia is offering Iran advanced surface-to-air missiles, five years after ditching the same kid of deal under UM pressure to comply with the sanctions over Tehran’s nuclear program, the RIA-Novosti news agency reported, citing Sergei Chemezov, head of the Rostec corporation, controlling Russia’s defense industry.

Washington and the West are not likely to be happy with such a deal, which is being publicized just as they’re getting to the finish line of a new agreement with Iran to curb its nuclear program.

Chemezov said Moscow has offered Iran the Antey-2500 missiles, an upgrade from the $800 million S-300 air defense system that was on the table in 2007 and was eventually killed in 2010.

Russia sold the same surface-to-air missiles to Venezuela in 2013.

A 2010 UN resolution bans the sale of missiles to Iran, but now, seeing as it is also under Western sanctions, over the invasion of the Ukraine, Russia doesn’t appear as impressed.

During Russia’s defense minister’s visit to Tehran last month, the two countries signed a military cooperation agreement.

Looks like it’s the cold war all over again.
